Want to Join Us at The Lodge?

Do you need a retreat? Would you like to join us for a special get-away this summer?

Imagine spending four days away from everything, with your husband, for an intimate time of fellowship, teaching, and relaxation—with delicious gourmet meals that you don’t have to cook! Life Action Ministries provides an opportunity for spiritual renewal and encouragement at “The Lodge.” This lovely 1921 French Country estate overlooks the St Joe River in Buchanan, Michigan, and is used as a private retreat center for pastors, leaders, and married couples. It is one of my favorite spots in the world!Lodge Winter

LeRoy and I will be there facilitating a retreat for pastors and their wives this summer. (If you don’t fit in that category, there are also couples’ retreats available.) We’ll have time together in the Word, delicious meals, lovely accommodations, and 82 acres of solitude to roam. It isn’t a strenuous schedule, there is plenty of time to reflect on our conversations and spend time alone together as a couple.

We would love to have you join us this summer, or if you think this is Lodge Interiorsomething that would benefit your pastor and his wife, consider talking to your church about sending them! You can check out the website where you’ll find out more information about the retreats by clicking here.
